Windswept Wave

Alright, so a small bit of story behind this one.

We’d had a lengthy series of days of a nigh-continuous storm.
I’d decided to head out to near Coogee to get photos of the ocean.
Ended up in Maroubra at Mahon Pool. Quickly moved to a place of shelter and took this photo (among others) whilst the rain and wind remained fierce.

It was not the safest thing I’ve done.

Mahon Pool is partially visible here, but much like everything else it has been engulfed by the ocean. The waves were quite violent and awe-inspiring just from their sheer power.

This photo I like as it shows the wind blowing the wave’s spray away from the direction it was breaking.

This is my submission into the one hundred-and-ninety-seventh Lens-Artists Photo Challenge.

The theme for this one is “The Rule of Thirds“.

If you consider the part of the wave with the greatest amount of spray the main part of this photo, then it sort of fits the theme.

The host of the Lens-Artists challenges cycles weekly between the following people:

Week 1 – Patti

Week 2 – Ann-Christine aka Leya

Week 3 – Amy

Week 4 – Tina

This year three people are joining the Lens-Artists team:

John Steiner of Journeys with Johnbo

Sofia Alves of  Photographias

Anne Sandler of Slow Shutter Speed

As such the above hosting order is likely to change.

This one is curated by Tina. The next one is curated by Patti and the theme will be related to “Light and Shadow”.

I recommend participating in the challenges. They’re enjoyable and allow room for interpretation of the theme without straying too far. If you don’t participate, then I recommend that you at least check out what others of the Lens-Artists community are submitting.

I hope you enjoy.
